This ebay auction has a 180 speedo.

Never seen one of these before, and curious if anyone knows which model car it may have come from.

Asked the Seller if it was mph or kph but never got a reply.

that would be kph. 180 kph is about 120mph.

It may well be kph, although it works out to 112mph, which is perhaps a tad low for an '02. Maybe the 1502 had this?

I know RHD tiis (& my RHD Touring for some reason) had 140mph speedos, and I think the Turbo, for Countries with miles, had a 150mph speedo.

+1 on the 180 KPH speedo but 180 KPH is a little over 110 MPH. I have a 180 KPH speedo in my Euro cluster that I picked up at an auto flea market in Germany in 2008, it's now in my parts bin. 180 KPH speedos were stock on 1502, 1602, & 1802. I believe 2002's had a 200 KPH speedo and ti and tii had a 220 KPH speedo. The tach was probably installed after it left the factory since Euro 1502, 1602, & 1802 came with a clock instead of a tach. My 75 1802 that I had in Germany in the early 80's came with a clock (pulled a cluster from a wrecked 02 fixed the no tach problem) and the Euro cluster in my parts bin has a clock as well.

Here in europe, 180km speedo was original in 1600-2, 1802 and 2002.

2002tii had 200km speedo, 2002ti had 220, and turbo have 240.

Altough alpina used 240 speedos on some tii's and all of tii alpina have 220, i did came up with one 180km in alpina 1600 ti, fully rally car, it has also full cluster without a rpm-meter, and have hole beside the closter, the seller by parts said that it was up to 14000rpm, and one did took it before me.

So i did buy closter and install it in my car with 220km and rpm-meter, i have 180 alpina cluster and watch for sale. If anyone is interested.

Best regards

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
